1st - I have to say using your technique here opens up a whole new world of possibilities for creating fresh Mini-CAMs that is inspiring and elegant. Good work.
Like I said, I never in all these years thought to use Fast Play
for anything let alone to create Mini-CAMs
2nd - There have been efforts over the years by folks wanting to create Mini-CAMs
(6-8 Missions on 250 x 250 Map, for example) using the Main Campaign Structure
that haven't much gotten off the ground because of the daunting tasks involved. This technique of yours is way more straightforward, not nearly as daunting, and I can see these same folks being able to more readily achieve their desires-goals-visions in creating this CAM mode of game play by using this Fast Play technique
rather than the Main Campaign Structure. You can even do Mission Briefs using the Intelligence Reports. Very cool and innovative.
3rd - As for loading the MOD - I must be doing something wrong cause I couldn't get it to load as a Global via Command Line.
What I ended up doing was replacing by hand the Default FP .wrf with yours and then dropping your Scav .slo and .vlo into the base.wz FP script folder.
May be worth composing, in time as the technique is thoroughly explored, a How To Create a Mini-CAM Tut
in Fast Play
. I can see this proliferating both as a new venue for creators and as a new entertainment for players who don't much do MP. (And there are a lot of those folks - in the past they have out-numbered MPers by a country mile at least. Guessing that has not much changed.)
Perhaps as well, a New Mini-CAM
BB and a new catagory in Add Ons
Excuse the unabashed gushing. It is much to do with seeing myself working deeply in this fertile mode when I get back to WZ creating anew in '11. To be sure, I thank you for unearthing and laying out these nuts and bolts for exploring what to me is obviously the yet to be realized power and wide ranging scope of fresh creation and game play within the Fast Play Mode
